I was given the Nov/Dec 2011 edition of Selvedge magazine by a good friend. If you have any interest in textiles, it is well worth a squizz.
Anyhoo, as I was leafing through marvelling at all the talented people there are out there, I came across an article on Stephanie Housley and her beautiful ‘Coral and Tusk‘ range of embroidered bits ‘n’ bobs. Stephanie started Coral & Tusk in 2007 with her husband Chris Lacinak. She is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and is clearly a massive animal lover, too. She lives and works in New York.
I was already familiar with some of her work, having picked up one of her lovely brooches last year.
When I purchased my wee brooch, I had no idea how extensive her collection is.
There is the stationery, which is designed as a keepsake and fits into a standard frame (how gorgeous!):
The children’s ware (and in my favourite colour, too!):
And the home and gifts (sigh):
Best of all, Coral and Tusk sells directly from their website and ships internationally.
